  1. In brief, I'm attempting to capture the form data from a dynamic form to a mysql database. From here: To Here: The post data looks like this from the form - DATA SUBMITTED: Array( ... [petlist] => [{"Pet Name":"Hal","Pet Type":"Dog","Breed":"Lab","DOB":"02/10/2013","Gender":"Male","Special Needs":"No"}, {"Pet Name":"Bill","Pet Type":"Dog","Breed":"Golden","DOB":"03/20/2015","Gender":"Male","Special Needs":"No"}] ... ) PHP CODE: ... $_POST['petlist']; ... As a non-php or mysql developer, I'm learning on the fly. This is a section of the php file that I was using to post the form data to mySQL. This worked great up to the point I added the dynamic form widget. <?php // This function will run within each post array including multi-dimensional arrays function ExtendedAddslash(&$params) { foreach ($params as &$var) { // check if $var is an array. If yes, it will start another ExtendedAddslash() function to loop to each key inside. is_array($var) ? ExtendedAddslash($var) : $var=addslashes($var); unset($var); } } // Initialize ExtendedAddslash() function for every $_POST variable ExtendedAddslash($_POST); $submission_id = $_POST['submission_id']; $formID =$_POST['formID']; $ip =$_POST['ip']; $fname =$_POST['fname']; $lname =$_POST['lname']; $spousename =$_POST['spousename']; $address =$_POST['address'][0]." ".$_POST['address'][1]." ".$_POST['address'][2]." ".$_POST['address'][3]." ".$_POST['address'][4]." ".$_POST['address'][5]; ... $db_host = 'localhost'; $db_username = 'xxxxx'; $db_password = 'xxxxx'; $db_name = 'xxxxx'; mysql_connect( $db_host, $db_username, $db_password) or die(mysql_error()); mysql_select_db($db_name); // search submission ID $query = "SELECT * FROM `tableName` WHERE `submission_id` = '$submission_id'"; $sqlsearch = mysql_query($query); $resultcount = mysql_numrows($sqlsearch); if ($resultcount > 0) { mysql_query("UPDATE `tableName` SET `fname` = '$fname', `lname` = '$lname', `spousename` = '$spousename', `address` = '$address', WHERE `submission_id` = '$submission_id'") or die(mysql_error()); } else { mysql_query("INSERT INTO `tableName` (submission_id, formID, IP, fname, lname, spousename, address) VALUES ('$submission_id', '$formID', '$ip', '$fname', '$lname', '$spousename', '$address') ") or die(mysql_error()); } ?> It has been suggested that I explore using the PHP Explode() function. It's possible that may work, but can't get my head around how to apply the function to the PETLIST Array. Looking for suggestions or direction to find a solution for this challenge. Looking forward to any replies.
